3 Common Blunders To Avoid When Picking A Beach Wedding Dress

Besides a great shoe game, a beach wedding is not complete without a great wedding dress. For a bridegroom, a dress is not a big deal, since any suit can do. However, to a modern bride, the wedding gown is like a gun is to a soldier in a raging battlefield. That is why if you want to dress to kill and let people address you as the bride, pay special attention to how you choose your beach wedding dress. The reason is that your selection decisions will determine the overall results of the process of selection. Despite the importance brides attach to this traditional costume, some of them still blunder in the selection process. Therefore, we dedicate this post to share some of the fatal selection blunders to avoid if told you want your wedding dress to stand out of the crowd.
Being overly informal
Yes, we know that your beach wedding gown is not an office dress you to wear to that promising job interview or your company’s board meeting. However, be careful lest when you make it too informal, you end up in another extreme. You need to make sure that your wedding dress is both informal but still maintaining an ooze of elegance and class. It is prudent to factor in how you will look in the beach wedding dress—special and exclusive, since you are the center of attraction in the wedding day and venue. Just apply balance to the whole equation so that your gown does not look like another sundress, eh!

Excess Tulle

A wedding by the beach is a breezy and refreshing experience! However, it is necessary to remember that the climatic conditions at the beach are different from those ones on the mainland. The reason is that you will encounter some steady coastal winds that could start blowing off your dress if you choose a very long gown. Remember, a great beach wedding costume should be built to withstand all natural elements common at the beach such as salty shores and wind gusts. If you do not factor in this reality, it is possible to end up fighting with the wind instead of enjoying the breeze at the seashores. To avoid this blunder, it is needful to go for a fabric that “floats” and allows in enough air to pass so that you can enjoy the control that comes with simplicity. This way, you will retain your top place as the elegant, gorgeous, and special center of focus at the beach ceremony.

Carrying the wrong people to the wedding dress shop
It is true that a wedding is not a private affair, since it involves two people coming together. This unifying truth means that all your friends and family have a legitimate stake in your big day and the happiness that ensues from it. That is why you will need to carry a few friends or family members with you when shopping for the gown. However, it is good to be careful whom you carry to the floor of the wedding costume shop. The reason is that not all family members or your girlfriends have a genuine interest in your happiness. Anyone who lives in the real world knows the even blood sisters could as well wish you ill in your wedding plans. So, make sure you carry just a few girlfriends and family members you are sure have your best interests at heart.
You need to choose people who will not throw roadblocks in your way and turn the shopping time into another heated debate where five different people are proposing five different designs and colors. On the contrary, ensure that the people you choose know and appreciate your personal style, colors, and preference so that they can make their suggestions to enhance them, since the wedding gown is yours. This way, you will avoid the trap of getting the wrong beach wedding dress just because you want to arrive at a consensus to please everyone.
Your wedding dress is an important tool for your life’s most memorable day. Therefore, you need to make the selecting process successful by shopping with the right team of friends and family, paying attention to the design and fabric of the dress, and its general outlook. This way, you will avoid the costly blunders we have discussed in this post and have a happy wedding day on the beach.
